Yuzu Citrus

Click HERE to see our Citrus Availability Calendar!

“How will you yuzu?”

The Yuzu [pronounced: yoo-zoo] is a small Japanese citrus fruit that resembles the outward appearance of a tangerine in both size and shape; however that is where the similarities abruptly end. The yuzu is yellow in appearance, with many large seeds and a small quantity of bitter or sour juice. In fact, some yuzus lack juice entirely and are instead filled with a mass of just pith and seeds!

So what the “heck” do you do with yuzus if you can’t eat them?
Here is where traditional Japanese cuisine comes in!The Yuzu is a commonly used fruit in Japan. They are very aromatic with a deep “citrusy” floral scent. The juice flavor is like a tart, citrus, “fusion” of lemon and lime. The fragrant peel is often minced small and added as a garnish to both soup or broiled or simmered fish. Sauces are often made from yuzu, as well as candied peel from the rind. You might recognize a “hint” of its flavor here in America from your favorite Japanese restaurant, if you have ever used soy-sauce ponzu. Now you can find yuzu being used many different culinary ways, including yuzu “essence” being infused into “high end” vodka. So, “how will you yuzu?” With a little bit of cooking skill, a little imagination and some yuzus from Pearson Ranch…the culinary sky is the limit.

Did you know?...

The Yuzu comes to us from East Asia, and is believed to be a hybrid of sour mandarin and a slow-growing species of citrus called; Ichang papeda.
